Just In: Nusrat contemplates legal action as video chat app uses her photo without consent

This came as a shock to Nusrat Jahan when someone on Twitter notified her that the actor-MP’s picture is being used to promote a video chat app. She was literally shocked to see this and made it clear she is ready to take legal action against those who are behind this action.

“This is totally unacceptable – using pictures without consent. Would request the Cyber Cell of @KolkataPolice to kindly look into the same. I am ready to take this up legally. @CPKolkata.” Tweeted the actress.

Experts believe quarantines and lockdowns have forced us to relearn how to date and some of these lessons come with some serious ill effects. Coronavirus has also upended what we used to think were the ground rules in dating in this digital age. In pre-coronavirus era, texting someone to fix a date was fine, but calling a person, let alone video-chatting before going for a date, was tiptoeing toward creepy.

Now, these online video chat apps are tempting the young adults to try out dating in a new way. The worst part is while promoting they often use pictures of girls without taking any consent from the concerned person. This is no doubt unacceptable.
